Please carefully select your literature to ensure the sources are credible and reliable. What discipline am I working in or is it interdisciplinary? We are keen to see if you can explain the discipline or if the studies are interdisciplinary, what this means for the study process, results and audience. Has my search for sources been wide enough to ensure that I have found all the relevant material? We look at the reference list first, so this is important. Has it been narrow enough to exclude irrelevant material? Is the number of quality sources used appropriate for the length of my essay (on average for a 3000 word essay, there would be no less than 10 quality references (academic journal articles). If you are using a mix of books, and media, theses would be additional). Ask yourself whether you have critically analysed the literature. This involves moving beyond just listing and summarizing resources. Assess them, discussing strengths and weaknesses. Compare and contrast the arguments in each of the main journal articles. To move outside your own worldview and to challenge it, we encourage you to cite and discuss studies contrary to your own perspective.
